  • Impressive tower guarding the ancient Citadel. A piece of history to be admired in all its grandeur. Definitely worth a visit

  • You arrive and have climbed the Hill slope and stairs are enigmatic. Notice that the first Tower went down, so did. History seems to have changed again ruler, was built during the reign of Pisa who is like. Again people of Pisa tower to make what would be. Table is moving up and down as Gates constructed a defense with a wedge-shaped door, of the origin of the name is on the wall. On the back wall is not temporary is used as a prison is located in the State of opening. Enjoy next wasn't there seems another tower to this other place, but I can't go there.

  • We visited this beautiful Tower in a great day with a cloudless sky. It should be noted that to access the Tower using wooden ladders with handrails but pretty steep ... There is no elevator ... But once at the top you are rewarded with a breathtaking view over the city. I suggest to all those who do not suffer from Vertigo bar at least half an hour about this monument to breathe a bit of history and admire how beautiful Cagliari.

  • The tallest point of the town. Nicely renovated this ancient gate. Great view of the entire harbour. There are no elevator just stairs and very steep ones. Definitely needs to visit.
  • Great to see it and imagine that this was once the entrance of the city.
  • The cute elephant is smaller the expected.
  • The views are breathtaking!
  • The Tower of the elephant stands the medieval walls of Cagliari and dominates over the whole territory. Second in aletezza only the Tower of San Pancrazio, the Tower of the elephant is accessible to visitors every day of the week until 19.00. From the top you can admire a fantastic landscape that takes your breath away. I would highly recommend! Suitable for families.
